Temporary Relocation of Kiss and Drop Zone to Hipwell Avenue
As part of the project, the kiss and drop zone, formerly located on Hezlett Road, has been temporarily relocated to Hipwell Avenue, behind North Kellyville Public School, and the capacity has been reduced to three cars at a time.
Where possible, please park on nearby streets and walk the short distance to pick up your children to reduce demand on the kiss and drop zone. Travelling times are likely to be impacted - please travel slowly, beware of changing traffic conditions and follow all warning signs and the direction of traffic controllers. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this important work.

Construction on the upgrade of Hezlett Road has now begun.
The anticipated duration of work is 12 months, subject to favourable weather and timely completion of works by service utility authorities.
As part of the upgrade, Hezlett Road will be widened to two lanes in each direction with allowance for kerbside lanes to become clearways during peak hour and available for parking during off peak hours.
Signals will be installed at the intersection of Hezlett Road, Samantha Riley Drive and James Mileham Drive and at the by-pass at the intersection of Hezlett Road and Barry Road.
Signalised pedestrian crossings will be provided at Hezlett Road in front of North Kellyville Public School and at the intersection of Hezlett Road and Gum Nut Close.
Works will also include a “Kiss and Ride” facility in front of North Kellyville Public School, the provision of new and the upgrade of existing bus stops and the construction of pedestrian refuge islands and footpaths.
To make the best of the upgrade, the signals at the intersection of Hezlett Road, Samantha Riley Drive and James Mileham Drive and the signalised pedestrian crossing in front of the school will be the first items to be completed.
At Council's Ordinary Meeting on 25 August 2020, a construction tender was awarded to Menai Civil Contractors for the upgrade of Hezlett Road.
- Early works including the relocation of utilities and investigations into road and soil conditions began in July 2019.
Due to construction works, various traffic control measures will be implemented during each stage of the works, including the installation of concrete barriers to separate traffic from the work area, reduced roadwork speed limits, short term detours and side road closures.
